New York rapper Skuboy has been a big supporter of 108MICS for the past few months, and I like to think I’ve been able to repay the favour by supporting his dope music. Do NOT sleep on this guy, his year has only just started and he’s going to make his mark in a big way.
1. First off, can you explain how the SYNDROME movement started and what it stands for?
The Syndrome movement is based around my lifestyle and a lot of the bullshit i been through frenemies, seeing niggas turn bitch that i fed on the humble, and my cousin passing away I just needed a world away from all this fraud shit you know? So as far as what it stands for is just that cause in this world let alone this music shit its a lot of that going on
2. What does your original name YAMSCHILD mean?

3. You’ve dropped some dope music in the past month, and you should have another song dropping the same day of this interview. What inspires your ultra-consistent work rate?
